I just got back from my first day on the job!! I think the new position is going to work out well, even though it’s a bit of a trek. We’re living in southwest London (Earlsfield), and the job is in the very very far northeast (Harlow Town). It’s a solid 90 minutes on 3 different trains, if everything runs perfectly.
The people seem nice, and there is a field with sheep and cows right next to the office! There is also a really great canal/river with houseboats and a lovely walking trail beside it. I’m planning on exploring that later in the week, if the weather stays this lovely.
Thanks for all your well-wishes, by the way! It definitely eased my nerves to know you are all rooting for me!
